Art Coviello, executive chairman of RSA and executive vice president of parent company EMC (NYSE: EMC),  will retire by Feb. 28 and act as a strategic adviser to RSA President Amit Yoran through the transition period.

Yoran, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 list for 2015, will assume Coviello’s responsibilities but remain in his current role, EMC said Tuesday.

“Over the last two decades Art has made a vast and positive imprint on RSA and the security industry, ” said Joe Tucci, chairman and CEO of EMC.

Coviello served as chief executive of RSA Security before the 2006 acquisition by EMC.

He helped develop RSA’s portfolio to include identity management, security analytics and governance, risk and compliance, and grow annual revenues to $1 billion in 2014, EMC said.
